Linguistic, genetic, and archaeological evidence indicate that the Philippines has been inhabited by humans for many thousands of years. By what means the earliest settlers arrived in the archipelago is still a mystery, but a growing body of evidence points to the likelihood that they possessed seafaring technology. If so, then modern Filipinos -- who are even now making their first tentative steps into space -- are heirs to a rich heritage of exploration, the story of which has yet to be fully told.
